Ah, Saturday. Ah, Trader Joe's. Ah, cookies...and chocolate, and salted caramel. Let's get this party started.

I sent Jack to Trader Joe's this morning to pick out our latest subject. (Yes, I kind of like to blog by the seat of my pants. If you see it on the blog, chances are, we've eaten it in the last 24 hours.) ;)

trader joe's milk chocolate salted caramel butter cookies : a weekly #traderjoes dessert review series from's review is of Trader Joe's Milk Chocolate Salted Caramel Butter Cookies. They're made in France, ooh-la-la, and come in a 5.64 ounce box costing $3.99 each. Jack thought we would need two boxes.

A mom's (my) take: Crispy, butter cookie + soft caramel + smooth, rich milk chocolate = a win in my book. These are the perfect accompaniment to an afternoon latte pick-me-up. Although these are very good, they don't get 5 stars. Like the Salted Caramel Gelato that we reviewed recently, if something is labeled as "salted caramel," I really want to taste that hit of salt.
Overall rating: 4 of 5 stars

A teenager's (Jack's) take: In these, the caramel flavor really pops. Literally. I bit into it and the caramel came out... its consistency is not very viscous (not necessarily a bad thing). The type of chocolate here is just right (for my tastes), and compliments the rich, buttery, taste of the cookie. That flavor, however is eclipsed by the chocolate and caramel, so you really have to focus if you want to get the buttery aspect of these wonderful cookies.
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars

  1. I love Trader Joes... They have the best kind of combination of healthy, sweet, and foods that are satisfying.

  2. Anything salted caramel is okay in my books :)

  3. I always enjoy reading these mother & son reviews. I'm going to try out the cookies, but I definitely am going to miss the salted aspect.

    Happy Monday, Bridget

  4. If it's chewy and thick, like it looks in the picture, it is highly viscous.

    1. Actually, the caramel part is not chewy and thick, but on the thinner side and a little runny.

    2. This is my favorite cookie. Period. And sad to say, I checked with Trader Joe's and they're discontinued due to 'slow sales'. If they'd TASTE them at Trader Joe's, they'd embrace and keep them. I'm so sad!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! Happy baking! :)
